Frozen by day, burning by night…
Celine knew it would come to a head one day. The missions she undertook for the shadowy Melinno society brought her entirely too close to the men she was keeping an eye on. And despite being warned she fell in love, not once, but twice. This time she will not walk away. If keeping Edward Fiske means fighting his enemies too, then so much the better.
But Edward is a man of many secrets, secrets that he has hidden in every precise motion, and every controlled flick of his pocket watch. Charged by Lord Granwich at the War Office to shadow Mr. Khaffar, the recipient of information from the traitor Pedro Moreno, Edward is not surprised when Mr. Khaffar comes after him with deadly intent; he has, after all, been the man’s accountant for the last year.
But Edward certainly does not expect be rescued by Celine, nor become embroiled in her affairs that seem strangely intertwined with his own. As the coincidences mount, they both return to the place where Edward's heart originally froze. There many truths are revealed, for Edward, Celine and Lord Granwich, in a dark bonfire of secrets, passion and intrigue…
